Stella Sounds: The Scarlatti K Series
(Jun 11–Sep 4, 2011)
Exhibition curator Elsa Smithgall introduces Stella Sounds: The Scarlatti K Series.
The eight recent sculptures from Frank Stella's (b. 1936) Scarlatti Kirkpatrick Series—swirling, multicolored polychrome forms with coiled steel tubing armatures—are dynamic evocations of the colorful sounds and rhythms of Domenico Scarlatti's harpsichord sonatas.
